Learning and Teaching Resources (OER) Repository

Well, I had a most intersting chat with Linda Humphrys today about the Libraries need for a learning and teaching resource repository. At the moment they use their web site or the LMF or Moodle to host eXe tutorials, camtasia videos etc., However, she’d like to make it more coordinated and include metadata etc., I mentioned my need to host the OER resources we’ll be rolling out this year to support the PGCAPP, and the emerging (dispersed) use of case studies, how to guides and FAQs.

The plot thickens as Momna is also keen to have a repository to host her OER resources, which are currently sitting on a web site.

Therefore, after thinking about Mahara etc., it suddenly struck us, all we need is a system to enter templated (fully serachable information) as the actual files can (will / should) sit in other systems (the LMF, local file stores, blogs etc.,), so why don’t we put another version of our PhPFAQ engine, but this time brand it as a Learning and Teaching OER Repository !!

We could take a lot of pointers from the Jorum system, especially in terms of catagorising collections, as well as reviewing how OPuS organises the collections and communities.

In addition, an insight into what metadata to hold / publish can be gleened from Jorum – the following example is based on one of Momna’s submissions (http://open.jorum.ac.uk/xmlui/handle/123456789/4706)

Title:

Immunotherapy in Cancer

Web Resource Address:

    So, firstly, can we create a form (template) where people simply add the details for the item? secondly, is it worth adding all the metdata tags (the full record) or just keep the simple one?

      Linda – likes the idea, things Momna’s metadate is appropriate for her needs. Will ask around
      Nitin – FAQ engine should do the job … might require a slight modificaton of core code for the templated FAQ creation form, however, should be possible.
